Manfredi “Al” Mineo and Steve Ferrigno were gunned down while leaving a Bronx apartment on Pelham Parkway. The pair were reported to be be meeting with their leader Joe “The Boss” Masseria and several other key organization members to plot strategy against the Maranzano faction. Unbeknownst to Mineo and Ferrigno, the apartment was being watched by Maranzano forces, who were stationed in an adjacent ground floor apartment with windows overlooking the courtyard. When the pair emerged, they were ripped to pieces with shotgun and machine-gun fire.
While the above picture is not new, the ones below are newly discovered pictures of the crime scene following the removal of the bodies. Note the second window on the right is closed, indicating both shooters likely fired through closed windows at their targets.
